Let's Be Amigos: Title VII Bilingual Project. Evaluation of the Second Year 1970-1971.
Offenberg, Robert M.; And Others
The "Let's Be Amigos" bilingual education program seeks to meet the needs of both Spanish-speaking pupils living in the Philadelphia community and English-speaking pupils living in linguistically diverse neighborhoods. This document presents an evaluation of the three curriculum formats used in the program during the second year. The Model A program uses a team-teaching approach, in which an English-speaking and a Spanish-speaking teacher work with a pair of classes, each having English- and Spanish-speaking pupils. For language instruction in each language, the groups are homogeneous; the groups are mixed for joint activities. The Model B program, not fully implemented, makes use of itinerant, second language specialists working with homogeneous Latino and Anglo classes in second language instruction. Mother-tongue instruction is provided by native speakers. Ideally, both classes would participate in joint activities. In the Arriba program, pupils who have begun their education in a Spanish-speaking area and who need or wish to study in Spanish study science, mathematics, and social studies in Spanish and English as a second language in grades three through twelve. This report describes the objectives and procedures of each program and provides a detailed evaluation of each. For an evaluation of the first year, see ED 046 295. (VM)
